PBA President Defends Officers Who Restrained Man On PCP Who Later Died

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The head of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association has come to the defense of NYPD officers who restrained a drugged, emotionally disturbed man near St. Patrick’s Cathedral after his death was ruled a homicide on Friday.

An investigation has begun into the death of 45-year-old Ronald Singleton, who police said was high on PCP when he was restrained in a “protective body wrap” by officers in order to be transported to a hospital, 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported.

Singleton, who was not under arrest, went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance and was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center.
